How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr Foster?

The film traces the rise of one of the world\'s premier architects, Norman Foster and his unending quest to improve the quality of life through design. Portrayed are emblematic projects such as Beijing Airport, the Reichstag, the Hearst Building in New York and works such as the tallest bridge ever built in Millau France. In the very near future, the majority of mankind will abandon the countryside and live entirely in cities and Foster offers some striking solutions to the problems that this historic event will create. Foster\'s projects are photographed in a style that brings their spectacular nature directly to the audience.
